Tongue Piercing Experiment

I was super nervous about getting my tongue pierced. I found someone to do it for 20 bucks and I took my adult handicapped brother with me 😉

He was laughing and smiling the whole time. I told him to hold my hand and he kept laughing the whole time I was screaming! 😡

I was upset because once it was done I couldn’t believe I had gone through with it. I’ve had it done for about 2 years now and I just dropped my whole case of rings down the sink trying to clean the balls.

I am upset but oh well I can get it redone later. I hope my story has amused you!

Don’t be afraid! Just do it! 😉

Crazy Tongue Double Piercing – Doesn’t It Look Amazing?

Crazy Double Tongue Piercing

Have you seen anything like this crazy double tongue piercing?

I don’t think you’ve often seen a girl having pierced two holes in her tongue, so I guess she deserves a little bit of admiration for her courage and daring, don’t you think so? 😉

Now let’s talk about the jewelry used in this particular tongue piercing.

The piece of tongue jewelry closer to us is a typical logo tongue barbell, and if you look really close, you’ll notice the yin-yang sign on it.

The other tongue ring is a typical steel barbell with acrylic endings, and even though it’s the cheaper end of the tongue body jewelry, there’s nothing wrong with having a few of these in your stash to shock your friends!

You did what?!

i have wanted to get my tongue pierced since high school.

i will be 30 next month and have decided to give myself an early birthday gift. i went to an evolution ink where i was suggested to go to because it is very clean and the people are nice.

i went in a week ago and got it done. i asked any questions i had and got the answers i needed. i did get most of my questions from the web. i watched as the piercer got prepared and prepped the things he needed. then it was my turn to get prepped. i had to gargle and put on a “bib” for the saliva. i felt like i was in the dentists office. i leaned back with my arms on the table and closed my eyes. i told the piercer to get it done and over with so i did not have to know when the pain was coming.

it felt like a prick, almost like getting stung by a bee. i love my tongue pierce and so does my husband. i was able to eat right away but still have to be careful. i definitely will tell others how much i like my piercing 😀

Tongue Web Piercing – Who’s Going To Notice It?

Tongue Web PiercingTongue web piercing is a very interesting type of oral piercing. I added it to the tongue piercing category; however, it’s not actually going through the tongue.

Tongue web piercing goes through the webbing right under the tongue – you know, the one which becomes visible when you lift up your tongue.

They say that the healing process is quite fast and usually no complications are observed – of course, if you adhere to the proper tongue piercing aftercare advice.

And it all makes sense because the small web under the tongue is a tiny little piece of tissue and no wonder it heals fast.

However, one thing puzzles me when I see the tongue web piercing. Namely – who’s going to see this piercing if you don’t lift up your tongue? We get body piercings so that the others would see them, right? And even if you have a genital piercing you don’t have to lift up any flop of skin so that the piercing becomes visible…

Anyway, there are folks who have this kind of tongue piercing and most likely it comes with a combination with other piercings. You know – just to make fun and boast to friends to have a body piercing they don’t have.

Well, on the other hand, the fact that no-one is going to see your tongue web piercing can be actually an advantage. Let’s assume you really want some facial or oral body piercing. But you have a job, for example, where the company’s policy forbids wearing body jewelry. Even the usual tongue ring may be noticed by your boss.

So this is when the tongue web piercing comes handy. No-one on Earth will tell you that you have your tongue pierced and sure you won’t lift up your tongue when speaking to your boss, will you?

Oh yes, if you’re probably wondering if the tongue web piercing has been recorded in the ancient cultures and tribes – the answer is: ‘no’. There are no recordings known to us that someone before the 90ies would have their tongue web pierced…


Tongue Barbells – from $1.99!!

Tongue BarbellsCheck out our huge choice of Tongue Barbells below – prices start at just $1.99 – thats up to 80% off RRP!!

Tongue barbells are also called tongue rings. Yes, I know they don’t look nothing like rings, but it’s now become a common description for many body jewelry types – belly button rings, nose rings.

However, the belly rings are actually bananabells, but the nose rings – studs or screws.

And you can’t actually insert a ring into the tongue piercing unless you have it pierced at the very rim. But traditionally you will be able to insert only tongue barbells.

Unlikely other barbells – like belly button barbells – tongue barbells are only straight, they don’t come bent. The reason for this is very simple – there’s not need for it! Your tongue muscle doesn’t require any other shape of a piercing because the piercing goes straight through.

Usually the tongue barbells come into sizes starting from 3/8″ and ending with long 3/4″. Why such a difference in sizes? Well, it’s going to depend on where exactly you have your tongue pierced.

If you have the piercing around the middle of the tongue – you know, the most common location – the tongue barbell’s length will be approximately 10 mm.

If you have the tongue piercing closer to the front of the tongue, the tongue barbell has to be shorter. And, logically, it has to be much longer if pierced further down the tongue.

So why is it so important to have the tongue barbell in the right size? The reason is the following – you have to make sure the tongue ring’s adornment is not going to bother you while speaking or eating. Therefore it must sit closely at the surface of the tongue!

Usually when your tongue is pierced, they insert 12 mm tongue barbell and when the piercing is not swollen anymore, they replace it with a 10 mm tongue ring.

The materials available are titanium, bioplast, stainless steel and gold. The available styles and shapes are so many, that it would take ages to describe them all! You better check them out below and see what you like best!

The Most Important Tongue Piercing Aftercare Instructions

Tongue Piercing Aftercare

Did you know that tongue piercing is one of the fastest healing body piercings? Yes, when I found out that tongue piercing can heal in as little as two weeks, I was really surprised!

But anyway – even though it heals fast, there are a few tongue piercing aftercare tips you have to always abide by to make sure your fresh tongue piercing is not going to get infected. However, it’s worth pointing out that thanks to the natural mouth’s microclimate your fresh tongue piercing is very little likely to get infected at all!

These aftercare guidelines are universal for all kinds of the tongue piercing. Whether you have a simple vertical tongue piercing, horizontal tongue piercing or tongue web piercing the basic principles remain the same. The tongue piercing aftercare tips don’t involve treating the very piercing place with a cotton bud, for example.

As you can imagine, the mouth is constantly getting salivated and kept moist so it would be of a very little help to try to wipe the very tongue piercing’s place with a saline solution. It would be much easier just to take the cleaning solution in the mouth and rinse it, wouldn’t it?

Well…Yes! So this is the first tongue piercing aftercare recommendation.

Rinse your mouth a few times daily using saline solution or an alcohol free mouth wash. This way you’re going to facilitate the healing process and that’s the most important thing right after getting the swelling gone.

Do it after the meals and before going to bed to clean the food remains and other kind of microscopic plaque. And if you’re using mouth wash that contains some alcohol, dilute it making a ¼ solution.

The second tongue piercing aftercare tip – ease your tongue’s swelling by using plenty of cold drinks and chewing on ice during the first weeks after getting the tongue pierced.

Right after getting pierced your tongue will swell up and your first tongue ring should be longer than you’d wear normally. It’s going to be especially hard in the mornings. Having been lying down the whole night will cause the blood pump into your head more than during the day and the tongue therefore will get swollen following the piercing.

So drink cold water and suck ice cubes frequently during the first days after the piercing. And try not to eat or drink anything warm or spicy as such things will irritate the fresh tongue piercing.

The next important tongue piercing aftercare step is to change your first tongue ring you got inserted at the moment of piercing to shorter tongue body jewelry. It’s very important because you have to prevent any possible damage to the fresh piercing.

After around 10 days after getting pierced the tongue’s swelling will be gone and then you can insert a new, shorter tongue ring. I’d suggest you visit the piercing studio where you got it done and most likely your piercer is going to tell you that.

When the tongue is back to normal and you’re getting the final tongue ring, make sure the beads sit tightly on the surface of the tongue.

Every now and then check that the piece of tongue jewelry is sitting normally in the piercing and isn’t about to fall out. You know, sometimes the ball may become loose and you certainly don’t want to accidentally choke on it!

So wash your hands before touching the tongue ring and make sure the balls are screwed on securely.

But one tongue piercing aftercare advice can never be underestimated – don’t take the piercing out even when it’s well healed! Your tongue piercing is different to the other body piercings and will close up very quickly if left without body jewelry!

Sexual, Controversial and Rebellious – It’s Tongue Piercing!

Tongue PiercingUnlike other body piercing types like belly button piercing and nose piercing, the tongue piercing is a typical modern piercing. No-one from the ancient tribes and cultures wore tongue body jewelry.

The only recordings of a ritual tongue piercing come from the ancient Aztecs, Mayas and some other North-American native tribes.

However, they didn’t perform the tongue piercing with a purpose of wearing some tongue jewelry in it. Their main goal was to let the blood split out as a sign of honoring the Gods.

But these days, apart from some crazy bod-mod guys who like cutting and scarring their bodies, tongue piercing is performed with a sole purpose of wearing tongue jewelry in it.

So let’s look at how many different tongue piercing types are known out there – and what tongue jewelry can be worn with every of those.

The first and the most common type of tongue piercing is a usual vertical tongue piercing. In this case the tongue is pierced through the middle from bottom to the top and a straight barbell is inserted into the fresh piercing. Right after the piercing the tongue will swell up so usually a longer barbell will be inserted into the piercing which can later be replaced by a shorter one.

Variations of the usual tongue piercing are multiple tongue piercings when a person wears more than just one tongue ring. A separate case of a multiple tongue piercing is a venom piercing or a double tongue piercing because it resembles the placement of a snake’s fangs.

So apart from tongue piercings that go from the bottom to the top of the tongue, what other options do we have when it comes to choosing the tongue jewelry placement?

Well, horizontal tongue piercing is another type of tongue piercing and it’s not that common. In this case the piece of body jewelry – a straight barbell most likely – will pierce the tongue through from the left side to the right side. And another variation of this piercing is a Scoop piercing – a vertical tongue piercing, only the ends of the jewelry will face upwards and the body jewelry used is going to be a hoop.

And lastly – there are folks who go for piercing the web under their tongue instead! This is called just what it is – tongue web piercing – and you can wear small captive bead rings, straight and curved barbells into these tongue piercings.
